These words, spoken to D. L. Moody by a fellow evangelist, fired his imagination and gave him a vision for living all-out to the glory of God.
"By God's help, I aim to be that man."
D. L. Moody preached the gospel to more than 100 million people in the pre-television era. His energy and vision gave birth to fruitful ministries in publishing and education. He was an innovator, encourager and disciple maker. He had a passion for souls.

Yup, I've been struggling with this audiobook for quite a while; since June, 2012 and it's now March, 2014. It is NOT a page turner. My life has been strongly influenced by the ministry of D.L.Moody and so I really wanted to like the book but there's just too much detail. For many reasons, I admire Mr. Moody's life but I just can't make use of this much information on his day to day activities.
The narrator read the book with a decent voice and without detracting from the text. No fault to Mr. Marosz.
The chapter I appreciated most was the last, and that is not just because I was determined to finish the book. The final chapter summarizes the most salient characteristics of the man and what made him effective in the service of Jesus Christ. If you get this audiobook, skip ahead and listen to that one first. Otherwise you may never get to the salient bottom line.
A very good biography of the well known 19th Century Christian evangelist. I have read other biographies of DL Moody, but Dorsett covers ground have I have not come across before. Unlike some previous efforts here we have the man painted 'warts and all.' Very well read.
